Breaking NewsLyndhurst trustee shown the door

By Kyle Orlowicz / Reporter

LYNDHURST (Nov. 18, 2010) — After 20 years of service on the Lyndhurst Library Board of Trustees, Mayor Richard DiLascio showed Annie Rowe the door last month when he opted not to reappoint her to her long-held position.

Perhaps it was time for Rowe to move on; however, the longtime public servant and volunteer said she was not given the opportunity to step down gracefully. Instead, she was the last to find out of DiLascio’s decision to replace her and was not even told by the mayor himself.

Breaking NewsELECTION 2010: Bergen County executive results

Photo by James Dombrowski

HASBROUCK HEIGHTS (Nov. 3, 2010) — Republican Kathleen Donovan beat incumbent Democrat Dennis McNerney on Tuesday, Nov. 2 in the race for county executive. With 446 out of 553 precincts reporting, Donovan led the vote tally 96,687 to McNerney’s 82,326. All of the results are unofficial. Donovan claimed victory at the VFW in Hasbrouck Heights on election night. She was surrounded by her campaign supporters.

The race between McNerney and Donovan was highlighted by debates on Bergen County’s blue laws, property taxes, the millions of dollars used to restore Overpeck Park, the future plans for the Meadowlands Sports Complex and open space. Donovan, a Rutherford resident and current county clerk, cast McNerney as a product of the Bergen County Democratic machine. McNerney, in turn, said Donovan was unaware of the intricacies of being county executive. The two debated at the Williams Center in Rutherford in early October as part of the ongoing Leader Forum series.
